Add printers

Start Celiveo Admin Browser Agent

The Admin Browser Agent is software that is locally installed to allow synchronization with local printers. It needs to be downloaded in order to add physical printers. The download is prompted at startup in a popup window.

Discover Printers

You can use one or both of the available options to search for printers in the network.

Discover printers from a print server

In the area marked 1.1 in the illustration above, enter the information and click on the Search icon.

  • hostname or IP address of domain server,
  • domain server administrator login,
  • domain name and
  • domain password.

Discover printers by scanning the network

In the area marked 1.2 in the illustration above, enter the information and click on the search icon.

  • start range of the IP address to scan
  • end range of the IP address to scan
  • the timeout period for the scan duration (seconds)

2.1.2: Add Printer from Search Results

Search results are shown in the section marked 3 in the illustration above.

  1. From the search results, select the printers you want to add.
  2. Click at the bottom-right (see 4 in illustration above).
    You are returned to the Add Printer wizard. The printers that are reachable are displayed on the top half of the screen, while the printers that are unreachable are displayed on the bottom half of the screen.
  3. Click [Next].

Edit printer settings

Under the printer list, select a printer and click on any icon on the printer taskbar.

Edit printer description

You can change the description of any physical printer. As you move the cursor over a printer description that can be changed, the cursor changes to an edit icon ( ).

  1. Double-click the printer description to change. The Edit Printer screen displays.
  2. At [Printer Description], specify the new description.
  3. Click [Save].

Delete a printer

  1. Under the printer list, select a printer and click on the [Delete] icon.
  2. When prompted, click [OK].
  3. When deleting a virtual printer, make sure there are no workstations associated with it. A prompt is displayed to confirm this action.
  4. Click [OK].

Adding a Universal Printer Endpoint

Printers that do not support embedded agents, Xerox and Fujifilm printers/MFP require one or more Universal Printer Endpoint (UPE) to be installed on a workstation/server on-prem that is able to reach those printers. On these devices some of the communication cannot be done directly to Celiveo 365 and UPE acts as a gateway to expand their capabilities. See here on how to create and deploy UPE.
